The Feather

i give you a feather

it may mean little but it means so much

simple, complex meaning it has

white as snow but, vivid all at once

i let it fall into your hands peacefully

the look in your eyes turns frightened

the whiteness changes to black

the feather becomes heavier

eventually, it builds you down

but, i am built up

i no longer carry the feather

i give you a feather
